Chronic back pain lead Kim to her first yoga class. She believed that the body could heal itself, and saw yoga as an investment in a fully functioning body and a long term answer to eradicating pain from her everyday life. 10 years later in 2015, Kim completed her first teacher training with YogaLondon and in 2016, completed yin yoga teacher training with her teacher Melanie McLaughlin from The Yin Space in Australia.
Practicing yoga has taught Kim to listen to the body, because the mind has too much chatter; that everything is always changing; and self compassion is one of the biggest things you can practice if you want to make a positive difference in the lives and world around you. And it can all start on the yoga mat.
Kim invites students to become explorers of their own body, encouraging playfulness and often incorporating heart focused and grounding themes to allow students to become closer to their truth, their "atman." She teaches strong, alignment based vinyasa flow, taking students out of their heads and into their bodies. With her calm voice guiding you, you will not even realise you have broken a sweat!
Kim's yin yoga classes are inspired by the teachings of Melanie McLaughlin, and her teacher Paul Grilley. Drawing on Modern Meridian Theory, which states that "chi", "prana" or energy, flow through the connective tissues of the body, Kim holds a space where students can open, release and let go.
When Kim's not yoga-ing, she's cooking up a storm with fresh finds from the local farmers market, riding around town on her first ever bike, and when she can, loves getting her hands on a bar bell for some Olympic Weightlifting!
